|Lyrics:||There's a full moon out |
By the graveyard tonight
Ain’t no soul to be seen
And the headstones shift
When the raven calls
This dark, dark Halloween
The vampires stalk a new blood to dine
The werewolves howl at the moon
When zombies rise, it’s an ominous sign
They’ve been waiting for you
Run fast, run fast, run as fast if you can
There ain’t nowhere to hide
The goblins, freaks, ghouls and ghosts
Are gonna run with you tonight
Their teeth are sharp
Their hold is strong
Their eyes are glowing red
Don’t act scared
Cause they’re everywhere
Don’t look under your bed
Once they surround you, all hope is gone
They’ll be no words to speak
Don’t get caught alone
Cause your flesh and bone
Will be their trick or treat

Said Dave: "I enjoy making a living making music as there is something always new to learn. If you know one instrument, you can learn another. If you know how to engineer one style, you can always learn another. My main question I ask myself when writing and making music is "what gives you goosebumps". The mechanics of songwriting and engineering can get quite technical, however at the end of the day its what makes you feel something."
